I was a friend of the family of the woman that died in the 80's. It was a horrific thing to happen. I hope they put the cameras on the bridge. This is such a horrible thing for our young ones to be doing. They are probably not looking at the all things that can happen with this type of deeds.

This has been occurring for more than 30 years. Why doesn't the DOT place fencing on the sides of the over passes where this is occurring? It's a solution that has worked most every where else.

When I worked for advance auto parts a long time ago, I heard about one of the big rig drivers had big rock or bowling ball dropped from an overpass, went thru her windshield. It is a miracle there was not a fatality. Most likely, the person or people doing this are juveniles with nothing better to so. Wonder if the area in question can have a surveillance camera set up to catch them.

A woman died in the 1980s because of this type of mischief, on the Freeway.

Just one of the risks of going through a dangerous neighborhood at night I guess.

And when they catch the &($)'s, charge them with asault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill....
